Drive-Thru & Get Your Holiday Treats!
Each year during the holiday season, our bakers are hard at work making cookies, macaroons, and other sweets. This has been a challenging year for all of us, so we are especially thrilled to once again offer our signature sweets, which includes pints of cookie dough, sleeves of chocolate-dipped macaroons, and cookie-decorating kits — all of which will make perfect holiday gifts for loved ones. Best of all, proceeds directly support healthy, healing meals for our clients! Read more here.

COVID-19 UPDATE (11/21/2020)
In light of the many conversations everyone is having around rising COVID rates in Minnesota, we wanted to update you on what Open Arms is doing. As you may know, Open Arms of Minnesota is considered an essential service, providing medically tailored meals for individuals and their families experiencing life-threatening illnesses. At this time, we will continue to strictly adhere to local, state and CDC guidelines, ensuring we are not only continuing critical services to our clients but just as importantly – keeping our staff and volunteers safe and healthy. Our operations and services to clients are dependent on the generosity and involvement of our volunteers, and we will work to ensure the safety of everyone who comes into our building or engages with our services.

Introducing the COVID-19 Response Program
At Open Arms of Minnesota, there’s always room for one more at the table!

Today, amid another public health crisis, we are proud to announce that our medically tailored meals will be reaching even more neighbors in need: those in Ramsey County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
